My reasoning was pretty logical.

Dallas sees days with highs in the 70s and/or lows in the 50s almost every September which they would never get from June-August. And Dallas has a summer minimum in rainfall, while September and October are two of their wettest months in contrast

In contrast, yes Minneapolis sees thaws in March, but due to the nature of Continental Climates, they see thaws from Dec-Feb as well, and still see snow and freezing cold in March. The only important thing that differs March from DJF in Minneapolis to me is the daylength and sun angle



To be fair I have seen 50s in June in Texas, not in Dallas but actually further south, so its possible in Dallas too but yes uncommon. Good point about us getting thaws in winter, but the difference is that March thaws are guaranteed pretty much, with average highs in the low 40s, where as winter thaws are scattered and not always a guarantee. We only had like 2 days above freezing last month, which was uncommon but you wouldn't have a March like that here. Though you can still have very cold Marches. This is one is an example. Last March, well it was so warm that I saw lilies sprouting towards the end of the month. Not blooming, but sprouting. It wasn't even a particularly warm March, it was just average.

Thinking of this topic... I had my car parked in the sun in Minneapolis today, 27 degrees out. I got inside... felt like a tanning bed. Super warm! Sure it looks winter, but doesn't feel much like it. Hmmm...
